QuotesEdit

Castle: It happened backstage, right upstairs. They were stealing a moment together which was dangerous because she was Dempsey’s girl. As they stared into each other’s eyes, Kate’s heart quickened...
Beckett: Did you just say Kate? Are you picturing the PI as you and me as a gangster’s moll?
Castle: What?! No! And I didn't say Kate, I said fate. Fate’s heart quickened. I was being poetic. God. Anyway…
Ryan: Okay then. When was the last time you saw him?
Manager: Uh, this morning. Stan was all smiles. Gave notice that he was moving out ‘cause his ship was coming in.
Ryan: What ship?
Manager: Oh, I don't know. The Titanic, from the looks of things.
Esposito: Well, if you remember anything else, can you please give me a call?
Manager: Don't hold your breath, hotshot.
Ryan: I think she likes you.
Betsy (about Joe): You better wise up, Vera. Dempsey will have you butchered if he finds out. I mean, he's a hell of a smoocher and all but, damn it, girl, is this yum-yum really worth it?
Vera: He's the cream in my coffee.
Betsy: You two are a walking fairy tale, good Lord.

Featured MusicEdit

  • "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" - Louis Armstrong
  • "Comes Love - Unreleased"[2] - Tamala Jones (sing as Besty Sinclair) - Arranged by Robert Duncan

TriviaEdit

  • This marks the first time that actress Tamala Jones (Lanie Parish) has sung in public.
  • The title evokes such classic PI tales as "The Maltese Falcon".
  • Beckett's 1940s alter ego is named Vera. "Vera" was the name of Jayne Cobb's favorite gun on Firefly, Nathan Fillion's old show.
  • At this point, according to Castle, "I have twenty-seven novels you can chose from", although how many of those are Derrick Storm and how many Nikki Heat is not clear.
